After spending a fun evening catching up with my friends whom I haven’t seen in a few years, I headed out and north to play a course I haven’t played in 15 years at Northeast Creek Park in Jacksonville. The 1001-foot signature hole on this course was only the second hole I’ve ever played that was over a thousand feet long (the first on a ski slope in Utah). Ironically, the last time I played it, the hole was only a mere 800 feet long. I then drove to Richlands to play the beautiful Richlands-Steed Park course there and then the fun Glenburnie Park course in New Bern afterwards.
Having gotten my disc golf fill for the day, I made my way to Harkers Island to catch a ferry out to the Cape Lookout National Seashore and the lighthouse out there. Unfortunately, it had gotten very foggy and the first ferry service said they were no longer running because of it. Luckily, though, I was able to find another ferry to take me over and even though the fog made for some cool photos, the sun eventually burned it off and it really showed off the beauty of the island and lighthouse.
I then drove to the end of Harkers Island to check out the Core Sound Museum which offered a great view of Cape Lookout from the rooftop balcony. Since I had an early morning ferry to catch to go to the Outer Banks, I then made my way over to Cedar Island, where I got a room at the Driftwood Hotel.
